New image plates: Red Angel

Around a week ago I logged into my facebook and saw a post about Red Angel (tm) image plates. After looking at the price and the images I ordered them. Sadly, I haven't gotten them yet because it usually takes around 2-3 weeks to receive an item from USA if you live in Canada.

Sorry

Hi guys I'm truly sorry for not have posted anything on my blog or either on my youtube account for quite some time know. It's just I've been busy with my classes (especially my midterms). I think from know onward I'm going to try to post more often on my blog.

Thanks' to my lab gloves my nails are shorter and it's harder for me to maintain them in a square shape. Bright side to that is I don't have to check for possible chip positions on my nails every other day :D.

Anyways, I'll be posting pictures of the nail designs that I've done in the past few weeks/months, but for the time being the design I have on right know is using one of the images from konad plate m60 (with special white nail polish by konad) on top of From A to Z-urich by OPI (The base coat I used is First base base coat by Essie, and I used Seche Vite's top coat).

I've had this on my nails for the past few days so please do avoid the slight chipping on the tips.

Zoya Smoke and Mirror Fall collection 2011


I can't tell you how happy I'm to have finally gotten my smoke collection fro Zoya`s 2011 fall collection. As most of you probably know by now Zoya released it's fall collection called Smoke and Mirrors on July 25, 2011.

Between I only bought the smoke collection didn't bother getting the mirrors collection, don't really like most of the colours present in the mirrors collection. Each, mirrors and smoke, collection contains 6 polishes and a total of 12 in the entire fall collection.


Zoya Smoke Collection (Creamy collection)


Jana (ZP564) – It's described as smoky mauve quartz cream. After applying two coats I was able to get the colour to match the bottle. You do need two coats of this.

Petra (ZP565) – It's described as a smoky eggplant mauve cream. After applying two coats I was able to get the colour to match the bottle. You do need two coats of this.


Codie (ZP566) – smoky brown taupe cream.I applied 2 coats of this but after the second coat the colour was a shade darker than the actual colour in the bottle.

Anja (ZP567) – smoky palatinate purple cream. After applying two coats I was able to get the colour to match the bottle. You do need two coats of this.


Cynthia (ZP568) – smoky Prussian blue cream. After applying two coats I was able to get the colour to match the bottle. You do need two coats of this.


Dree (ZP569) – smoky camouflage green cream. After applying two coats I was able to get the colour to match the bottle. You do need two coats of this.

I truly love the entire smoke collection, but if I had to pick my favourite colour I would have to say it's Cynthia. The colour is such a beautiful blueie creammy shade that I didn't want to take it off after I applied it.


Zoya Mirrors Collection 
Nimue (ZP570) – smoky rich thistle metallic
Marina (ZP571) – smoky steel blue metallic
Tao (ZP572) – smoky slate gray metallic
Yara (ZP573) – sparkly olive green metallic
Neeka (ZP574) – sparkly amethyst purple  metallic
Jem (ZP575) – sparkly fandango pink metallic

Gargantuan Green Grape by OPI

I don't why but for the past few months I have this urge of finding that perfect minty green. I thought I found the perfect minty green up until it took me 3-4 coats to get the proper shade on my nails, I wouldn't say I hate it because it dried pretty fast.

If someone were to judge Gargantuan Green Grape by looking at it's bottle they might have guessed it to be a minty green, pastel like shade. After applying it on my nails I think Gargantuan Green Grape is a pale green (like the first green grass of spring), with a paste green shade present in it. I personally love this colour, and if I were to rate it I would give it a 4.5/5 rating. (OPI also has Matte Gargantuan Green Grape, so when buying don't confuse the two.) Without flash:

How to get stronger and longer nails

I don't know why but for the past few months my nails have become quite fragile (they were cracking from the tips). I started trying new nail strengtheners and nail growth formulas. Couple weeks back I read some reviews about Rejuvacote by Duri on makeupalley.com and I had to try it out.
